couldn't you read it every day? instead of like every day?

sorry, just like had to.


No, because I don't literally read PFT every day. The word "like" serves to represent the sentence as: "I read PFT roughly on a daily basis" or "I read PFT almost every day".

Umm, you're completely wrong there. The way i see it it's the other way around: they're usually right but every now and then they get unlucky and get wrong.
And i read PFT like every day...

All of the things that they report that are right have already been reported somewhere else.

Every time they are the first to report, they are wrong. Tell me that's untrue.


They had the Supplemental Draft results up before even NFL.com did. They reported Daniel Graham to Denver before anyone else did. Those are just 2 examples that came to me off the top of my head.

So yes, your above statement is untrue.

So they jumped the gun.

Their news is not 100% based on fact. They take chances, and I would rather wait the extra 10 minutes to get the information from a site that is never wrong instead of get lied to by a site that likes to take chances on the big news.

They don't "take chances". They just report whatever information they get from reliable sources. Sometimes they will say something like "LeCharles Bentley might be going to the Eagles, according to our sources", and it turns out that Bentley didnt go to the Eagles, but that's why they said MIGHT. When they say something WILL happen or HAS happened according to their sources they are almost always right.
People who think PFT is so uncredible that it's not worth reading or posting their information obviously don't go on PFT very often, and they just hear about the rare times that they misreport something.
